Lund says she ordered a wheelchair so Kadee Mae could get around.But with all the snow, the wheels were no good.Lund says she worked with a Wisconsin couple to get donated skis and a Massachusetts company to have them shortened and attached to the wheelchair. She says Kadee Mae is now back to doing 2- to 3-mile walks each day.
